SY6878NW ST ALBAN STREET 873-1/24/277 (North side) 14/06/74 No.21 Milton Arms Restaurant (Formerly Listed as: ST ALBAN'S STREET (North side) No.21)


House, now restaurant. Late C16 or early C17, modified C20. Squared and coursed Portland stone, some rendering to front, and rear range in light timber-framing with brick nogging, asbestos-cement slate roof. PLAN: 2-room plan, heated to left; rear range to left also with heating, sharing flue, and shallow gabled range to left. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attic, 3 windows; C19 two-light casements at first floor above 3-light replacement stone-mullioned casements at ground floor with central doorway in 4-centred arch with stopped chamfer surround. The upper half of this frontage retains rendering, but the stonework is exposed below. 2 rooflights, and a brick stack to the left. The return, in New Street, has a gabled end with 2-light inserted casement, and, to the left, a lower gabled range with framed upper part over rubble ground floor. To the left is an early bay window in 1:3:1 lights to a hipped roof. The rear gable is boarded. A second gable at the far end of the building is in brickwork over a rendered wall. INTERIOR: has been considerably modified, but it retains a wide bressumer fire in the left-hand half, with stone cheeks and deep wood bressumer; behind this, in the rear range, and at right angles to it a second fireplace, also with stopped stone cheeks. Various beams with a small chamfer. The staircase is rear right, in straight flight to the first floor which has mainly replacement timbers, but a further fireplace above that at ground floor, with a deep cambered bressumer. The rear range, with modern kitchen, has a square panel timber-framed partition, and a central beam at first floor. A tight spiral staircase within the main block gives to the attic with 3-bay roof, without collars, but with mostly original principals, including 2 purlins. A rare survival from the period, with characteristically low ceiling heights. Referred to as Milton House in RCHME. (RCHME: Dorset, South-East: London: 1970-: 350).
